The fossil distributed version control system

Fossil: Distributed Revision Control, Wiki, and Bug-Tracking

Fossil is a distributed software revision control system that includes an integrated wiki and an integrated bug-tracking system all in a single, easy-to-use, stand-alone executable. Fossil is self-hosting since 2007-07-21 on two separate servers. You can download the latest sources and compile it yourself. Or you can grab pre-compiled binaries.

Feature Summary:

    * Flexible workflow:
          o Disconnected, distributed development like git, monotone, mercurial, and bitkeeper
          o Or, client/server operation like CVS and subversion,
          o Or, operations on local repositories,
          o Or, all of the above at the same time
    * Integrated, distributed bug tracking and wiki.
    * Built-in web interface that supports deep archaeological digs through the project history.
    * All network communication via HTTP with proxy support so that everything works from behind restrictive firewalls.
    * Everything (client, server, and utilities) is included in a single self-contained executable - trivial to install
    * Server runs as CGI, using inetd/xinetd or using its own built-in, stand alone web server.
    * An entire project contained in single disk file (an SQLite database.)
    * Uses an enduring file format that is designed to be readable, searchable, and extensible by people not yet born.
    * Automatic self-check on repository changes makes it exceedingly unlikely that data will ever be lost because of a software bug.
    * Ridiculously easy to install and operate.
